Infinity Ward are gearing up for their big curtain-raiser at the Call of DutyModern Warfare multiplayer reveal event on August 1, but leaked footage from the event – which was quickly deleted – has given an early look at some in-game action.

Countless YouTubers, streamers, journalists and influencers will be in attendance at the event, which will broadcast to the public on Thursday, August 1, showcasing Modern Warfare multiplayer for the first time.

Despite organizers’ best attempts to keep the event on lockdown, some footage, perhaps unsurprisingly, found its way online ahead of time.

What did the leaked Modern Warfare footage show?

The video was short and not great quality, showing players sitting at monitors trying out the game, but was good enough quality to make out plenty of distinct features.

One section revealed a first look at respawning, which was not present in the 2v2 Gunfight mode (as there was only one life per round). The camera appeared to swoop down as the player came back into the fight, and there have been indications that they were able to select their spawn point, at least in certain modes

The Gunfight mode was the first look at Modern Warfare multiplayer.

No mini-map confirmed?

Following claims from YouTuber Drift0r, the community is now convinced there’s no mini-map in Modern Warfare multiplayer, a first for the series, and the footage backed up this theory, with no mini-map in sight. 

Instead, a compass running across the top of players’ HUDs was visible, giving more information about enemy locations.

Some major changes are afoot in Modern Warfare.

It’s still not been officially confirmed by Infinity Ward, and there is still a chance that certain game modes or playlists will have a mini-map. Yet, for now, all signs point to the feature being removed entirely.

There are major concerns for how the lack of a mini-map could affect competitive play in particular, but we will not know for sure likely until professional players get their first hands-on experience.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is practically a household name for FPS fans and non-gamers alike. It’s no shock then that CoD fans were beyond excited at the possibility of a PS5 version of the game. 

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has become a staple title for the CoD franchise. After a recent clarification from an Infinity Ward dev that more content is coming soon fans have jumped back aboard the Modern Warfare hype train.

This announcement had fans scratching their heads over what new content would be released, especially when Black Ops: Cold War and its Warzone season are likely to be the focus of development for some time.

A reddit user, however, has sparked some life into the community by leaking a possible PS5 release for Modern Warfare in the near future.

Modern Warfare is the game that birthed Call of Duty: Warzone, which has exploded into a fully fledged esport.

Modern Warfare on PS5 Leak

A post and possible leak on r/GamingLeaksAndRumours by reddit user asjonesy99 has seized the interest of CoD fans from across the globe.

The post sees the possibility of there being a PS5 version of the title available in the near future. When purchasing the game, the dropdown menu shows the original PS4 version followed by a PS5 version.

The original post states that when he selects this option it becomes locked. After checking a plethora of other games, there are no other options for PS5 versions, so either this is a simple error or CoD are planning a future PS5 update for the game.

While excited, a lot of fans weren’t particularly shocked at this leak simply due to the popularity of Warzone, which launched alongside Modern Warfare in October 2019 and is fully integrated into the game.

The future is of course uncertain, and in turn this means that this could be nothing. However, it’s really exciting to think that Modern Warfare will be back with a bang to continue to inspire future generations of FPS players in the same way it has inspired the current one.
